Leeds Cultural Conversations - Set in Stone?
Leeds Cultural Conversations is a series of public lectures organised by the Centre for Culture & the Arts at Leeds Beckett University. The series is run in partnership with Leeds City Council with support from publisher Palgrave Macmillan. Free to event and open to the public, each event showcases a different piece of leading research being undertaken by our academic colleagues from our specialist research centre and we encourage debate with all that attend.
Helen Dampier is Senior Lecturer in Social and Cultural History. Her interdisciplinary research concerns the use of life writings, especially letters, diaries and testimonies, as historical sources. Helen's particular interest is in nineteenth and twentieth century South African history.
